Our Curriculum

The Three-Year Cycle

 

Montessori - building blocks activityOur programs are designed on a three-year basis. Parents are encouraged to allow their child to participate for the entire program. This allows the child to work in all areas of the curriculum and take full advantage of his or her years in the Montessori Method.

The three year cycle and mixed age grouping further aid social development by giving the children an opportunity to learn from each other and to accept different levels of ability.

Dr. Montessori realized that children of the same age do not necessarily develop at the same rate. The multi-age grouping is designed to meet the individual developmental needs of each child. This results in a stimulating, cooperative atmosphere. It also alleviates the Montessori counting beadscompetition between children. Each child is encouraged to better himself and not worry about where anyone else is.

The three year curriculum also allows the student the luxury of exploring knowledge that is of interest to him/her for days or even weeks at a time knowing that by the end of the three years the child’s educational growth will be balanced in all areas. They do not necessarily develop at a steady rate every nine months, September through May. The Montessori classroom allows for this type of sporadic growth.

The older child benefits from helping the younger child. The older child reinforces his/her own knowledge by teaching younger children. She can humanize her own character by empathizing with the needs and expressions of younger children. It is an opportunity for that shy and introverted student to be outgoing and confident, to assume a leadership role, and to gain skills that she/he will then apply to her/his own age group.
